Someone was asking why they charge to have their own name engraved on the brushes...Mr. Takeda mentioned they have another company do it for them--so that maybe why?
Anyway, I wanted to share my pencil brush (modified from Sonia's design). HEAVEN. Now my search for the perfect pointed pencil brush is over. Thank Goodness. A back up is on the way with the brush number and my name in English on it. Can't wait!!
Mr. Takeda also explained how he named my brush. And I imagine some of the other customized brushes they make.Pencil brush 10SRSS CSQU
: No. 10
, because the width of a round 6mm diameter ferrule brush, is close to the width of a 10mm pressed brush SR
= "Super round (very pointed)" SS
="Super short" (explained that 6-7mm hair length was "very, very short" for a 6mm diameter ferrule brush)CSQU
Thank you for the info
My list with Takeda is about to explode, they are probably going to think we are insane customers with very precise expectations... oh wait, I think they already think that
I want all the cs pencils in the world
Regarding the insect repellent... that needs clarification.... I use my brushes in rotation but I don't want anything to happen to them so I will ask for more info
I have 2 of my customized brush and another one that is a squirrel mix. I will tag you on my instagram pictures of the brushes. The mixed option feels just like tamage (it's canadian and european squirrel). So for shadows I use just the CS option and for liners and pencils I use the mixed option. Very VERY happy.
As for the insect repellant, the only thing I could figure is that he is trying to say to keep the moisture out of the brushes? Not sure what insects would be getting in my brushes! Clarification would be great.
So what I did was bought a 500 pack of small silica packets and placed some of them near my brushes and in my makeup acrylic drawers to keep the moisture levels under control. The silica packets can be bought on Amazon and so far I am very happy with them.
Let me know what he says about the insect repellent.
Oh and the logo is a modified white lily flower. He said that the company was named "White Lily Company" until about 1970. He probably got sick of all of my questions! LOL
